AMD director offloads shares

Written by Nick Farell



Does he know something?


AMD chairman Bruce Claflin has flogged 3,447 shares of AMD stock according to a SEC Filing today.

Claflin's title was listed as "Director" at AMD rather than his full title as Executive Chairman of the Board. Over the last year  Claflin has not flogged any of his shares but equally he has not bought any either.

According to the SEC there has been lots of stock sold by AMD insiders. More than 455,031 AMD shares were off-loaded.  It made the sellers more than $4,000,027.

However only 12,000 shares of AMD were bought  for a total value of $99,000.  On that basis it would be fair to say that the shareholders inside AMD don't really think the outfit's share prices will hold up.

Not necessarily bad news for AMD....could be a money making scheme....so high profile people within AMD sell their shares causing others to get scared and sell theirs, share price drops significantly at which point high profile people within AMD buy many more shares from the money they made on their original sale...then Trinity comes out and share prices sky rocket....equals one very happy AMD chairman.

AMD is getting crushed by Intel. If Kepler is significantly better than the 79XX series AMD could have real cash flow problems as their debt level is still too high.

I don;t know about Kepler and how things will go in second half of the year in the Graphics department but remember that most of AMD's market is mostly cpus. Seeing this sell off people don't just sell stock like this after having held it even this long if there were going to be future profits. What this suggests that they are expecting the price of the stock to drop enough to warrent its sale. Could be the result of internal problems with in AMD that could hint that they are not able to work things out regarding future sales of it's cpus.

As the 7000 series already seems to be a success I think it more likely that Kepler is going to fail to deliver. Nvidia's weakening strength will allow Intel to buy them.

That is when AMD would have real problems....Nvidia's gpu know how combined with Intels lead in process technology would be a powerful combination.

He's just bracing himself for the inevitable coming of Ivy Bridge. I think their GPU line up is rock solid, but they're being pushed around like little school girls on the CPU front.
